You Need To Have A Hard-Shell To Deal With These Customers

, , , | Right | May 1, 2019

(I am second in line for a counter service that sells both Mexican and American food. The customer in front of me walks up and begins making their order.)

Customer: “What is in the soft-shell beef taco?”

Cashier: “A flour shell, beef, lettuce, tomato, and cheese.”

Customer: “What is in the soft-shell chicken taco?”

Cashier: “A flour shell, chicken, lettuce, tomato, and cheese.”

Customer: “What is in the hard-shell beef taco?”

(This goes on as the customer asks the ingredients of every item on the menu top to bottom, left to right — tacos, burritos, burgers, sandwiches, salads, everything. He finally gets through the whole list. There is now a rather long line of people waiting.)

Cashier: “Have you made up your mind?”

Customer: “I’ll have a small French fry, please.”

(I can see the cashier is starting to lose their cool but is keeping it together.)

Cashier: “Anything else?”

Customer: “No, just the fries.”

(The customer happily paid and went to the end of the counter to wait for their food while close to twenty people stared in either amazement or downright hatred. The customer was blissfully ignorant and had a joyous calm that would have made a zen-master proud.)
